Speaking from beyond the body

I am ecstatic to speak freely from beyond the body without reservation. The body is not Me; it is not even a part of Me. I am nothing but a mind that is free to explore ideas other than My Father’s, or rest in His One Idea that is only His Love. I am only my Father’s “Son”, Created from my Father’s Mind, and I am free to explore the high heavens of imagination, or rest in My Own Love which is the Source of My Own Creation.

The body is an actor that I use in God’s Cosmic Play to remind of freedom. I am God’s Mind extending; God is not a body extending.  The acting body has taught me that I prefer to rest in Creation vs embody ideas conceived from an imaginary heaven. I happily return wholly to My Beginning.

Lesson 199 (ACIM)

I am not a body. I am free.

Freedom must be impossible as long as you perceive a body as yourself. The body is a limit. Who would seek for freedom in a body looks for it where it can not be found. The mind can be made free when it no longer sees itself as in a body, firmly tied to it and sheltered by its presence. If this were the truth, the mind were vulnerable indeed!

The mind that serves the Holy Spirit is unlimited forever, in all ways, beyond the laws of time and space, unbound by any preconceptions, and with strength and power to do whatever it is asked. Attack thoughts cannot enter such a mind, because it has been given to the Source of love, and fear can never enter in a mind that has attached itself to love. It rests in God. And who can be afraid who lives in Innocence, and only loves?

It is essential for your progress in this course that you accept today’s idea, and hold it very dear. Be not concerned that to the ego it is quite insane. The ego holds the body dear because it dwells in it, and lives united with the home that it has made. It is a part of the illusion that has sheltered it from being found illusory itself.

Here does it hide, and here it can be seen as what it is. Declare your innocence and you are free. The body disappears, because you have no need of it except the need the Holy Spirit sees. For this, the body will appear as useful form for what the mind must do. It thus becomes a vehicle which helps forgiveness be extended to the all-inclusive goal that it must reach, according to God’s plan.

Cherish today’s idea, and practice it today and every day. Make it a part of every practice period you take. There is no thought that will not gain thereby in power to help the world, and none which will not gain in added gifts to you as well. We sound the call of freedom round the world with this idea. And would you be exempt from the acceptance of the gifts you give?

The Holy Spirit is the home of minds that seek for freedom. In Him they have found what they have sought. The body’s purpose now is unambiguous. And it becomes perfect in the ability to serve an undivided goal. In conflict-free and unequivocal response to mind with but the thought of freedom as its goal, the body serves, and serves its purpose well. Without the power to enslave, it is a worthy servant of the freedom which the mind within the Holy Spirit seeks.

Be free today. And carry freedom as your gift to those who still believe they are enslaved within a body. Be you free, so that the Holy Spirit can make use of your escape from bondage, to set free the many who perceive themselves as bound and helpless and afraid. Let love replace their fears through you. Accept salvation now, and give your mind to Him Who calls to you to make this gift to Him. For He would give you perfect freedom, perfect joy, and hope that finds its full accomplishment in God.

You are God’s Son. In immortality you live forever. Would you not return your mind to this? Then practice well the thought the Holy Spirit gives you for today. Your brothers stand released with you in it; the world is blessed along with you, God’s Son will weep no more, and Heaven offers thanks for the increase of joy your practice brings even to it. And God Himself extends His Love and happiness each time you say:
I am not a body. I am free.
I hear the Voice that God has given me,
and it is only this my mind obeys.

      In dec 2007 when the mind was illuminated, it felt like the mind was not attached to the body and moved infinitely faster than it. It was much like the sense of floating around, weightless, not as subject to gravity. Driving the car felt like hydroplaning. The body’s limitations were not noticed as much. Consciousness expanded and included the view of the earth from space. In Oct 2009 when mind spontaneously rejoined Absolute Mind, there was no body at all, no earth, no universe; that state is indescribable, because the ability to make comparisons dissolved (there was no body to float in that state, no consciousness to expand). The Absolute State, at the level of Creation, is body-less, formless, Pure Love interchanging with Pure Love. Like a nonlinear, body-less, mind-less orgasm that just keeps going on and on without the potential of a nervous system eventually switching from pleasure to pain. Words cannot do it justice, perception cannot perceive the Absolute. I can say that body orgasms were laughable afterwards – boring even; it takes great concentration to fragment what is already exquisite of its own accord into a formed simulation of it. 🙂
